Gretsch G6139CBSL Center Block Silver Falcon
Gretsch Professional Collection G6139CBSL shown in gloss black with silver sparkle binding.
Falcon Center-Block Single Cut-Away guitar. It features a beautiful 1 ¾”-deep single-cutaway three-ply maple body with a 16”-lower bout, arched top and back, multi-ply sparkle appointments and oversized f holes. The centerpiece of the model is a long spruce center block.
The center block runs the entire length of the body and imparts several sonic advantages. First, it minimizes body-resonant feedback and allows a more “high gain-friendly” performance. Second, it’s made of spruce, which produces a spirited, lively tone. Third, the center block itself is chambered at the lower bout to minimize weight. Fourth, the pinned wood bridge base extends over the sides of the center block about 5/8” on either side, transferring string-vibration energy to the two f-hole-vented body chambers to produce a rich and full-bodied tone.
Premium features include a three-piece maple neck; 12”-radius ebony fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets, pearloid Neo-Classic™ “thumbnail” inlays and multi-ply sparkle appointments; Gretsch “winged/vertical” sparkle logo; and High Sensitive Filter’Tron™ pickup in the bridge and TV Jones Filter'Tron in the Neck. The guitar also has jeweled-arrow knobs and gold hardware, an True Arc bridge with pinned ebony base and Bigsby B6C Vibrato, Grover® Imperial™ tuners and Schaller® strap locks. Black with Silver Sparkle appointments. Deluxe hard-shell case included.
